Game 1: Alabama Predictions

And now, the season is really getting going.

Once again, we make our fearless predictions for this week’s game. Whoever is closest, based on our BCS-like calculations, wins a fabulous prize*.

*prize yet to be determined, but is most likely not fabulous.

Let’s see ’em:

Gally: 14-12 VT

The Northerner: 17-14 VT

Maniak: 20-17 VT

Meet-Bag: 20 – 13 VT

B-Dubs: 24-10 VT

The Bull: 17-13 VT

The DiP: 24-20 VT

Wright: 20-17 VT

Poppa Gally: DEFENSE!!!! VT 14 – Ala 10………At a minimum……1 BLOCKED KICK!!!!**
**copy and pasted directly from the email

The CMU Football Analyst: 24-17 Alabama***
***no one likes him

GWay: 17-10 VT

Bobby the Ginger: 16-10 VT

We usually like to get a prediction from a fan of our opponent. But since we have jobs and live in a city with economic growth, we don’t know any Alabama fans to ask.

So if there are any ‘Bama folk out there, please leave your score predictions in the comments. If you think someone will score over 20 points, ask a friend if you can borrow his fingers and toes.


And of course, Tech fans should absolutely let us know their scores. (See the section about a fabulous prize up above.) Just try to be as fair and balanced as we were in our predictions.

    21-6 Hokies
    Taylor tosses a TD and runs for a TD

  2. B-rock Says:

    13 – 7 Hokies

    Tyrod rushes for one TD and 2 field goals seal it.

    Hopefully since I have a job AND live in a city with economic growth, my opinion will carry some weight. Even if I cheer for the "bad guys"
    Here's a stat for you that I think is relevant… "the Hokies are 6-43 all-time against top-10 teams and 1-24 against top-five teams. Under Beamer, who took over in 1987, the program is 1-16 against top-5 opponents."

    Defenses are a push, We simply have more playmakers on offense than you do. My Homer prediction… Alabama 20, VT 10.

    Thanks STLBama! Glad to see you get our humor.

    If you didn't know, Tech kind of sucked for a long, long time. Luckily, we were born in the 80's and don't really care about anything prior to 1990.
